As technology further tightens its hold on the agricultural world, John Deere have sought to take advantage, with the use of Artificial intelligence.

Technology has had a deeper impact on the agricultural industry in recent years, therefore it is no surprise to see Machinery giants John Deere making the most of the opportunity.

Artificial Intelligence is the latest technological venture by John Deere, who have begun using Artificial intelligence to help more accurately spread pesticides. This is more relevant, with recent constant debates of the side effects of using glyphosates. There were calls for the licence to sell the pesticide to not be renewed, as France promised to ban its use regardless, though its licence for sale in the EU was renewed for a further five years, as reported by us here

This is why the accurate use of pesticides is all the more important and part of the reason why John Deere have begun using AI for more accurate and less wasteful use of pesticides. They have joined forces with Blue River Technology, a computer vision specialist, to develop a system that enables robots to make decisions on whether or not a plant is a pest or crop.

How it works:
This is done using an advanced machine learning algorithm, which gives the robot the ability to make those decisions. It decides on a plants type and nature (pest or crop), using visual data just as humans do.

If the plant is deemed to be a pest, it will then, via drone, shoot chemical pesticides at them. This offers farmers more efficient and reliable pest control, while it also eliminates needless waste of pesticides, which can prove costly.

John Deere involvement:
The system was so highly regarded, that John Deere purchased the start-up company last year. They now have added the advanced system to their list of available high-tech services they offer to farmers.

They have no begun to pave the way for GPS- pinpoint pesticide application, which will come in handy for the next five years!
